Artist's Statement

A dedication for the lovely Robert-PJ and his seemingly constant kind words, support and helpful critique. Thanks so much :-)
The barbed wire I used here is home-made, since I know of few places in the city where they sell the stuff- nor even to steal with my handy wire clippers! I made it using some thick wire I have, although it doesn't make it any less sharp, spiky or painful..
Taken using my macro lens (but that doesn't make it a macro image, since my face isn't below 2cm wide!)

Golden syrup-based fake blood and liquefied tissue.

Inspired by (and named with the title of) Vow- Garbage:
I can't use what I can't abuse
And I can't stop when it comes to you
You burned me out but I'm back at your door
Like Joan of Arc coming back for more

I nearly died
I nearly died
I nearly died

I came to cut you up
I came to knock you down
I came around to tear your little world apart

I came to shut you up
I came to drag you down
I came around to tear your little world apart
And break your soul apart

You burn and burn to get under my skin
You've gone too far, now I won't give in
You crucified me but I'm back in your bed
Like Jesus Christ coming back from the dead

I nearly died
I nearly died
I nearly died

I came to knock you up
I came to cut you down
I came around to tear your little world apart
I came to rip you up
I came to shut you down
I came around to tear your little world apart
And break your soul apart
